Collapse Into Me Tired With Joy

It's interesting how we all express our love in different ways. I hear about guys do big romantic gestures and that's so not something my boyfriend would do. I wouldn't want him to, either. I'm okay with knowing quietly that he loves me. I don't need big, loud expressions of it.

He uses his talents to express this in interesting ways. Although his job is technically in the IT field, he does all sorts of projects for his firm, including making short, informational movies for conferences. He doesn't have the resources there to film a lot of different things, unless it takes place at a law firm. So he does a lot of things with animation, and he's getting pretty good at it.

He makes little movies for me, too. Not super involved things, but he took my favorite animated character (Butters), and had him preform my favorite Snow Patrol song, guitar and all, alongside an animated version of himself while I saw in the audience.

Most recently, he animated a cartoon version of my favorite singer (Jason Mraz) preforming my favorite song (I'm Yours). He took the time to look up the chords and the finger placements on the guitar, so the animated Jason is playing the correct notes.

It may not seem like much, but I know how long it must have taken him to do all this. He did it just to make me happy. That's one of the million reasons that let me know he loves me.
